In Memoriam: Tim “Rawbiz” Williams

Tim "Rawbiz" Williams

Tim “Rawbiz” Williams, who played with artists from Toni Braxton to Suicidal Tendencies, has passed away. Suicidal Tendencies announced the new on their Facebook page.

“It’s with complete sadness that we have to announce the passing of bassists Tim “Rawbiz” Williams,” the band wrote. “Tim played bass for Suicidal Tendencies for almost four years until recently. Tim was a monster on bass, running around on stage in the pit, giving his all, even when his body wasn’t at it’s best. We will always remember him and appreciate all the kind words by those that were touched by his bass playing and him personally.”

A versatile musician, Williams graduated from the Berklee College of Music and went on to work with artists like Braxton, Keyshia Cole, Boyz II Men, and Young Jeezy. He was also featured on the MTV reality TV show Making His Band. Williams joined Suicidal Tendencies in 2011 and was featured on the 2013 album 13.
